Android phones and tablets news:

Droid XYBOARD

Officially coming out tomorrow, the Droid XYBOARD 10.1 and Droid XYBOARD 8.9 are already for sale in at least one Verizon store.  Packing a dual-core OMAP processor at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, LTE connectivity, and Honeycomb, these look like another great, albeit pricey (starting at $529 for the 10.1-inch 16GB model, and $429 for the 8.2-inch 16GB model), choice for Verizon customers who want a high-performance Android tablet. 

If you're out and about today, drop in your local Verizon store and see if they happen to be on the shelves, and hit the break for a few more pictures and a short video of the 8.2 up and running.

Thanks, Luc!

Android phones and tablets news:

Android Central

With 19 million downloads from the Android Market, it might be easy to get complacent. Not so in the case of ASTRO File Manager which today received an update to version 3.1, and brought a couple of big new features along with it.

ZTE squeezes 7-inch V66 tablet with Verizon LTE through the FCC’s halls

Posted by wicked December - 9 - 2011 - Friday Comments Off

Android phones and tablets news:

We just learned that ZTE has its eyes set on bringing LTE smartphones to the US market next year, but where does the Chinese company stand on tablets? The company announced at this spring’s CTIA that a 10-inch slate with the high-speed connectivity was in the works and would land sometime in the second half of 2011. Despite unveiling tablets for non-US markets such as the Froyo-packed Light Tab 2 and Tegra 3-powered T98, the manufacturer’s been awfully quiet about this March’s announcement. That all changed today, however, as this 7-inch LTE tablet waltzed through the FCC approval process. The V66, as it’s currently known, not only sports LTE band 13 — Verizon’s flavor of “4G” — but it even shows Big Red’s LTE logo on the back. ZTE actually outed the V66 at a Beijing tech expo in September, proclaiming that it would come with a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, Android 3.2, a 1,280 x 800 display, 1GB of RAM and a 4,000mAh battery. Of course, FCC approval doesn’t guarantee availability, and we’re thinking that the chances of arriving before the end of the year are pretty slim. Check out the extra pic after the break.

Posted by wicked December - 8 - 2011 - Thursday Comments Off

Android phones and tablets news:

Google Currents

Google’s rumored Flipboard competitor is finally here, and it’s ditched the Propeller codename for something a little more appropriate: Currents. The app is available for both Android and iOS — in tablet and phone-friendly formats — and delivers a more magazine like reading experience for perusing your consumable content. The free app offers you a swipeable, graphics-heavy way to read material from partners like AllThingsD, PBS, Huffington Post and Fast Company, as well public Google+ feeds and RSS. You can even import your Google Reader subscriptions — and it all gets cached for offline viewing. Of course, the whole thing is integrated with Google+ too, for quick and easy sharing. For publishers, Google is providing self-service tools for customizing how their content is displayed in the app. You can go download it now in the Android Market and in the iTunes App Store for free but, before you go, check out the video after the break to see it in action.
